it’s easy to stick your flowers/pens/utensils/ etc in…
but jars have soooo many uses…  for some reason…i thought it was super hard to make a soap dispenser….then i realized..it’s not.

you just start by picking a bottle and soap about the same size…

and you will need the lids…

you can spray paint…i mod podged some fabric on…

then i cut a hole in the middle…(big enough for the the pump to go through but not too big)

yup…the pump from the soap bottle….

then you just pour in the soap…

and for more great ideas…..

(check out mandy’s awesome chalkboard lid ones:)

and you can use it as a pin cushion like i did here
i use it to hold my son’s toys
a lamp..
a bank (these were on groopdealz or very jane awhile ago)

if you don’t have a lot of counter space in your bathroom this one would work wonders..

and sugarbee did a cute one for each kid (great idea….my kids can’t share worth a crap)

pretty little garden…

lamps…

nail in the lid to the underside of a shelf and screw on the jars.
